hm...then maybe something else is causing the computer to shut down. This is idle temp. Right after shutdown, i checked once and the GPu was around hugh 70s. dont remember the rest. Any other suggestions why the computer will shut down only while playing games?
I tried the ram. shut down again with both sticks. . While changing though, i touched the card and it was burning hot. not sure if that is normal or not. After replacing the ram and starting back again, here are the readings. Maybe was off for 3 mins.
I will do the core temp thing next. Thanks all for the help!
Just looked at the graph. Core #0 red is 103 and green is 72. Core #1 red is 102 and green is 42.
If you're saying that your core temps are over 100 degrees Celsius, you've found your problem. (In my graph, red is temp in default degrees C, and green is % CPU usage.) Your CPU cooler is failing to cool. What cooler are you using, and how sure are you that it's mounted properly?
Just to be thorough, I think I should mention dust. Be sure the vanes on your cooler aren't clogged with dust or pet hair or anything. If they look dirty, unplug the computer and clean the vanes off with an unused, dry paintbrush and a vacuum cleaner. Don't bang anything.
Thank you all so much for the help. I replaced some thermal and seems like there was a dust ball inside the cooling fan, cleaned that out real good and the temp is now steady. played the game and the core dint go over 50.
That was an oversight on my part. Every now and then i blow it up with air to clean. Never thought that dust would be trapped inside the fan thing. Even before posting here, i cleaned the whole thing out but missed to clean the inside of the fan lol.
